These playdough mat sets come in both black and white as well as color. This is helpful if you are printing at school and are color printing restricted or if you are just trying to save ink.
Each of the playdough mats contains three activities:
Read the word ~ Here the word is written in solid print. This is great for helping children learn to read and say the word.
Write the word ~ In this area of the playdough mat, children can use a lead pencil, crayon, marker or a dry erase marker (if laminated) to practice writing the word.
Build the word ~This is where the children can use playdough to build the word. They could also use things like buttons or pom poms to build the word as well. If the mats have been laminated, they could practice tracing the word with a dry erase marker.
